Twilight Zone

After an indifferent start the FTSE 100 improved 1.55% to 6,837, while the AIM All Share increased by 2.81%.  The US reported that employment had improved more than expected and  the FED hinted on a slower pace of interest rate increases in 2019. This may be supported by the FOMC minutes which are reported on Wednesday.

Also, on Wednesday the BOE Governor makes another ineffectual speech, due to the  necessary Brexit  caveats. There is a list of UK economic figures on Friday with GDP, the most watched is likely to show a stagnant 0.1% month-on-month raise.

The twilight market continues as its neither day or night.

This is not a reporting season, so we will concentrate on Reviews and the 10 Shares we think could more than double in 2019.

Mkt Cap: £144.4m
Next results: Finals, May

Palace Capital (LSE: PCA) has reinvested part of the £18.4m sale of non-core residential properties in a mixed commercial property in Liverpool. This will add rents of £1m in a full year.

Palace paid £14m for the 70,000 sq ft One Derby Square, which is 96% occupied.
Underlying NAV is expected to be maintained at 415p a share at the end of March 2019. The full year dividend could remain at 19p a share even though it would not be covered by earnings – although cash generated from operations could be similar to the total cost of dividend. The yield is 6%.

Allenby believes that Palace has another £16m available for investment. Investing this cash will enhance income. There is a 24% discount to underlying NAV.
